Product Description

Four young cornstalks-Golden Tassel, Minigold, Kernel King, and Big Ears-spend the summer in Farmer Kern's field. In spite of the dangers that threaten their survival, they grow in mind, body, and heart. The maturing cornstalks dream of what contribution they will make at harvest time. Will they feed the farmer's family? Will they be sold at the roadside stand? Will their contribution be important? Possibilities abound as they consider their future.
They will find out that, instead of being the end, the harvest is a graduation to a higher purpose, far beyond what they could have ever imagined! Interwoven into Golden Tassel's Graduation is the value of not wasting what God freely gives all around us, and fully utilizing the blessings in nature. Included in the back are discussion questions.

  1. 4 Stars Out Of 5
    A lesson about corn and the Bible

    This review was written for Golden Tassel's Graduation.
    Golden Tassel's Graduation, written by Kay Michaels, is a story about stalks of corn growing in a field. Golden Tassel is the name of one of the stalks. He is the tallest stalk of corn and can see all the others in the field. Some of the others are Minigold, Big Ears and Kernel King.

    The four stalks of corn, along with all the others, are in Farmer Kern's field. Their survival is depends on the weather and the care Farmer Kern gives them, and sometimes they feel as though the end is near. But, they look forward to "graduation day" as they dream about their contribution to the harvest.

    But it is more than that. It is a story about farming. It is a story about believing in God. It is a story about using what we have and not wasting it.

    The author includes different types of corn in the story and tells how each one will be used. Some are for humans to eat, some are for animals to eat, some are to use to make baskets, some to use as fuel, some for corn oil, some to burn in furnaces, and some to use for seed for next year's crops.

    There is a black-and-white sketch by Kathy Hoyt at the beginning of every chapter and at the end of nearly all of them.

    Isaiah 64:4 is given as a Bible reference for the story: "For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him."

    What I Like: I like the way the author ties in the many uses of corn as she weaves her story around the stalks growing in the fields.

    What I Dislike: Nothing.

    Overall Rating: Very good.

    Age Appeal: 6-9 years.
